Mistakes = Results

I was tying an order of kung fu crabs and forgot to add the rabbit claws. Not wanting to waste brush, saddles and hooks that were in use already i decided to make this into a fly for my own box. I think it should fish pretty well and am going to do more of them. It needs some sili legs i think. Might scale down the size too. This is a #4 but i think a #6 or #8 tied with beadchain would be very nice for shallow bonefish, permit or redfish. Looking for some opinions of what i should add/take away and sizing.
